2K Games has announced the formation of Hangar 13, a new development studio headed by industry veteran Haden Blackman based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The studio is working on an unannounced title for current-generation consoles.
Blackman as a director and senior producer for the Star Wars franchise at LucasArts Entertainment. He went on to co-found independent deeloper Fearless Studios, which Kabam acquired in January 2012. His awards slate includes the Writer’s Guild of America Videogame Writing Award for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and a GLAAD Media Award for DC Comics’ Batwoman. He is currently writing Elektra for Marvel Comics.
“At Hangar 13, our mantra is ‘Every player story is unique,'” said Blackman. “Our ambition is to create next-generation games that allow players to shape their own experiences, from the moment-to-moment gameplay, to the long-term impact on the world, characters and narrative. To realize this goal, we’re building proprietary technology and assembling a core team passionate about delivering mature experiences loaded with meaningful choices.”
